Selections from ‘The Four Zoas’
[Winter]
 
(Four Zoas, Night V, ll. 30–5.)

STILL the faint harps and silver voices calm the weary couch;
But from the caves of deepest Night, ascending in clouds of mist,
The Winter spread his wide black wings across from pole to pole;
Grim Frost beneath and terrible Snow, link’d in a marriage chain,
Began a dismal dance. The Winds around on pointed rocks        5
Settled like bats innumerable, ready to fly abroad.
